I like the thought of christians being tortured for all of eternity... it gives me a good feeling.
I dunno, Dylan Blaine. I haven't met more blatantly evil Christians than just stupid Christians in my short life.
I'd rather no one suffer than just the stupid people.
The horrific point to the Islamic and Christian views of Hell is that people relegated to these places do NOT perish, but have an everlasting life experiencing the ultimate pain of perfect torture. The paradoxical point of these doctrines is that everyone is given eternal post-death life, regardless of what they are rationally forced or emotionally choose to believe. Eternal life could hardly be described as a "gift" under circumstances which include torture.
@ Rosemary. This is not necessarily the case. Eastern Orthodoxy is the 2nd largest form of Christianity worldwide, and it has a very different take on hell, as it follows Athanasius' take on that subject. http://www.orthodoxpress.org/parish/river_of_fire.htm
You should be very happy that 'people perishing', will most likely not be your call. Being concerned with the 'n/7th Generation' issue might be worth considering...
Smells of ignorance. I was hoping to find less of that here. Many Christians do not believe in such black and white nonsense. Thus, I suspect Muslims are similar.
